Artificial Intelligence in Media, Entertainment and Newsgathering: Legal Issues You Didn’t Know You Have

Davis Wright Tremaine will team up with Quartz and FuseMachines on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 in our NY office for a CLE panel discussion on the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in media, entertainment and newsgathering.

From deep learning to deep fakes, the emergence of AI in media, entertainment and newsgathering is presenting both unparalleled opportunities and unique challenges. At the same time, the rapid adoption and integration of this technology into newsrooms and content production studios is presenting new questions for the legal counsel supporting those operations.

Are AI-driven bots that communicate with humans entitled to First Amendment protections? Are works developed by AI entitled to IP protections? How do questions of bias, ethics and transparency apply in these circumstances? Our panel of experts will address these issues, and many more, during this event.

Panelists include:

  • Ava Lubell, General Counsel, Quartz
  • Lance Koonce, Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
  • Dr. Steven Rennie, Dir. of Research, FuseMachines
  • Alison Schary, Associate, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
  • K.C. Halm, Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

2.0 CLE Credits Pending

*This program is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced NY attorneys.
